November 3, 2017- Fear of publishing and NaNoWriMo to face it

Hello November,

I just singed up in National November Writing Month, and it feels so great to announce a novel in a month! Since I have identified the fear of publishing as one of my biggest ones, let’s see how it goes now that I have taken this step.

So, my novel is starting, a sequel to a previous one, and let’s see how it goes!

I already have a title and I am to write every day. One Month, One Novel.

November 2, 2017- Flourish in November: Writing Month!

Hello November,

yes, I know this is the time for the leaves to fall down as winter is coming… but couldn’t we flourish as humans despite this fact?

How can this be possible?

Here is a great idea: November, is a writing month. So, let’s put oneself into this novel again!

November 1st, 2017- November Goals!

November welcome!

it’s a kind of chilly with 8 degrees in London this morning, and I woke faster to get to my new favorite café since my move. So, what are the goals this month?

  1. Act confidence, and submit as many manuscripts as possible, for publication
  2. look confidence, and dress up the part
  3. exercise
  4. plan things with friends, beginning from birthday celebration
  5. update for success and see what has worked and what hasn’t in my plans

I think this is enough for now 😉

October 31, 2017- Halloween origins and reasons to celebrate

Hello October,

Halloween is around the corner, and although it was not in my tradition to celebrate it, I looked around for information. Apparently, the origins go back to the ancien Celts, so it is well rooted in the UK where I happen to live right now.

Something I could relate with? Apparently, for the Celts, November 1st was New Year’s Eve, and something is dying for something else to be born, as winter is coming.

So I take it as a new beginning, and a day with mystery and magic, which I rather enjoy.

Especially with a nice desert and with a glass of wine.

At least I am waiting to see what my friends have in mind, who will celebrate it tonight and invited me over!

October 30, 2017- What to do when you don’t have the key

Hello October,

As I tried to get out this morning I realized a friend who visited me last night left with my keys by mistake. So, what to do, almost locked in?

I send her texts and emails.

A lesson for me also not to leave my keys lying on the table.

Lesson number two: get myself a porte-clés.

I planned to go for a walk, but on the other side, I could make coffee for myself here.

I can finish tidying and putting my clothes in the drawers, they are still here and there after moving in to the new place.

And most of all, I can … Dance!

So what to do if we don’t have the key to the door.

Maybe we can be creative.

We can take the door out.

We can get in or out from the window.

We can look for the key.

Ask for it.

Meditate, pray, and ask for the key.

We can make a key.

And if all this doesn’t work, we could look in our pocket.

October 27, 2017- Navigating in deep waters versus swimming pool floating

Hello October,

apparently, what makes a good sailor is to know how to face difficult weather conditions. Have you had anyone being qualified as excellent sailor because he knows how to cross the swimming pool with a floating chair?

Ok, the second can be very agreeable, but let’s face it, the swimming pool is not hiding a lot of excitement, new knowledge and adventure. And the floating chair is not the fastest means of travel.

It is more of a lingering type of thing.

So, yes, it is fine to be on the floating chair from time to time and relax. But for how long?

If you don’t use what you have, you will end up looking like a floating chair.

So deep waters are here to keep us in shape and make of us excellent sailors.

They allow us to grow to our fullest potential.

October 26, 2017- How to become oneself and live with others while having morning coffee

Hello October,

yesterday I had a discussion on what it is to be oneself and to live with others. I don’t like conforming, this is boring and the opposite of life to me. But we also live with others, how does this coincide?

I put up an artistic project where I try a compromise: do something I love, but give to the Establishment something they will like, so that everyone can feel happy about it.

Now let’s see how it will go.

If making others happy doesn’t cost me my quintessential values, I can do that.

Oh, and coffee is good at Beany Green near Paddington Central.

October 24, 2017- New Home, New Adventures, in London

Hello October,

I will concentrate on the adventures part because this is what matters most at this moment. I wake up early and look for potential cafes in my new neighborhood.

With my fridge empty, all my clothes on my bed and my bank account at a low point, I suffered bying a duvet cover in a huge department store in Oxford Circus.

And here I am today, with my body feeling tired after having waited for hours in front of a till to pay and then carrying my loot back home.

In the meanwhile, the main reason why I looked for a duvet cover, is still valid: I am to stay more in London, because I am looking for a central place to start my initiative from. Brexit and all, London still seems to be a central mega-polis.

So, I will stick around for a while.

 

October 19-20, 2017- The Samurai way and the loafer way ;-)

Hello October,

I am taking it easy today after particularly busy yesterday, to restore energy levels and get a sense of orientation. It’s great to have a Samurai attitude when it comes to work, but if you alternate it with a bit of a loafer attitude, it could be also interesting.

My idea is that we need to balance our energy, and some productive loafing could do that. That’s what we do while we sleep for example.

It is very creative to leave our mind wander with no purpose.

And the responsibilities, the bills, the people chasing us around?

The lack of means?

Well, we have survived that far, a couple of hours loafing will not do any harm.

We can meditate in the meanwhile, take care of ourself, give ourselves a foot massage if nothing better is not around…

So here I am, and I know this is the moment to give myself some pleasure.

Because we deserve it!
